College of Economic & Management Sciences

Student Initiatives


CEMS remains at the forefront of involving students in community engagement with EMSSA (Economic and Management Sciences Student Association), the student governance body in the College, having participated and implemented various initiatives in partnership with the academics and other stakeholders to the benefit of our youth. The involvement of students in community engagement initiatives serves as great platform to enhance their leadership capabilities, graduateness and employability.


Enactus Unisa is a student community engagement initiative and is part of a community of students, academic and business leaders committed to using the power of entrepreneurial action to transform lives and shape a better and sustainable world. Enactus is for leaders who can see an opportunity and turn it into value, meaningful, measurable lasting value that will have far reaching impact in people’s lives.

It is widely held that leveraging on the youth and entrepreneurship are important for South Africa to overcome the challenges posed by poverty, unemployment and inequality. Enactus - Unisa will serve as a platform for a multi-disciplinary team of students to collaborate in entrepreneurship initiatives that benefit communities to promote the realisation of the institution’s vision of serving humanity.
